Have you owned or do you own a Yamaha Motorcycle? I personallly love these bikes...especially the Royal Star Series with the Venture being my overall favorite...ultimate comfort...decent power...great reliability and unbeatable looks. How does it stack up with you?? Do you love these bikes as I do or is their dislike lurking??? Do you have a interesting story regarding your experience with a Yamaha? A great memory...something funny...a good picture. You're the boss here. Please enjoy this forum.
